Renaissance » Renaissance


Each year, Westmont High celebrates the academic growth and achievement of its students with rallies in the fall and winter through the Renaissance program.

Committed to Rewarding Excellence

The Renaissance program is a concept and attitude.  We are working to increase student achievement and celebrate success.  Ultimately, we hope to one day have 100% of the students on campus become part of Renaissance.

Westmont High School is proud to join many other schools throughout the nation in making a commitment to student academic excellence and self-improvement through Renaissance. WHS has been a part of the Renaissance program for one year and has already seen growth in academic achievement.

Students are rewarded for consistent achievement and turning around a negative academic record. Both are incredible accomplishments and allow the school to come together to celebrate doing well in school, no matter what their past situation was.

Three Major Goals. . .

1              To focus on and emphasize academic excellence


2              To recognize and reward student achievement


3              To recognize and reward staff achievement
